I've been in this for years now, and still feel like an outsider. I've been with my boyfriend for three years living with him but still feel like I'm not part of his life. When I attend family functions I get ignored, invited because of my kids but ignored. No one has tried to get to know me in his family or friends. I stayed with him through fighting his cancer, took care of him but I'm still not part of his life.

that does sound rough. but do they go out of their way to shun you or mistreat you?

No, I'm just there I'm never introduced, no one really talks to me. It's like I'm only there because of my kids.

i get that could be tough. but then, maybe go out of your way to get to know some of them. then if it doesn't work out, you could say you tried.
plus, as long as you have your kids, what more could really matter?
